Unification of the Color settings between applications ※Important※
We strongly recommend to unify the color settings of all your applications. If the color settings are different on each application, the color might change greatly even if you use the same image data.
This recommendation can be said especially in case of the embedded images.
When RGB image is embedded to the data of CMYK color, That image is converted to CMYK based on the color settings of the application you use. Please check also when your Illustrator data contains linked file which is not EPS format. If the [Include Linked files] box is checked on saving, images are embedded and convert to CMYK automatically.
